Do Any Plants Smell Like Cat Urine?

I have a beautiful flower bed around my pool, but there is one area that always seems to smell like a cat is peeing there. I was wondering if there are any particular plants that give off a similar type odor to cat's urine?

I've always thought that juniper bushes smell like cat pee. Do you have any of these nearby?

Yes! Sorry I can not name the plant but I can describe it. Two banks in my town plant a low evergreen bush around their property.

It definitely smells like cat urine. Maybe some kind of Juniper?

My mom had a plant she grew near her front door that used to smell real bad when wet. Cat urine. She had a name for it but it is Spanish, Rhutha. She would use it in witch hazel as a liniment.

It's boxwood. A lot of Boxwood's smell exactly like cat urine. I got rid of mine.

Juniper definitely smells like urine. We have one in front and one in back of the apartment building and if you walk by either one, especially if it's warm, you can't miss it. If it's breezy as well, the smell gets inside the apartments. You can be sure about this anecdote.

I recall decades ago walking by a tree full of box elder (also spelled boxelder) bugs and smelling urine a little bit. Not sure whether it was because of the thousands of the bugs or from the tree itself. I walked back and forth past the tree several times to confirm that was the location of the source of the smell.

Boxelder bugs are pretty distinctive, so I'm sure about the kind of bugs they were:

Not that I can think of. Are you sure you don't have any stray cats coming into your yard?
